Warzone finally found their sound again even if its a bit more punk this time around. This time with fellow HC legends in Cause for alarm. Both bands have a clear HC punk sound on the split that i welcome after to many years of Warzones noizy hardcore and bad overproduced metal crap. I know i never grew up with Warzone but this is the sound that i prefer by the band.
Cause for alarm delivers four ok songs with good drums and all but they dont really have a sound that captivates me.
Warzone has added a pinch of Oi! into their sound for this record, a choice i welcome with open arms. Great singalong parts in the choruses and Raybeez in his prime. Their first song is called Bullshit authority (no its not another song against Spanish bullfighting) that starts off with PIANO!!!! though they dont include the piano in the rest of the song to my great disappointment. Second song is called Do you know what you're fighting for? and is the best song on the whole split.
All in all a good record and a good showcase of Warzones things to come.
